Mr. Macias has been a proud PISD staff member for a good while now. During his time here, he has shown his ability to remain level-headed and make the right choice in tough decisions. It is easy to see how much he enjoys teaching others and helping guide them as best he can.
On the sixteenth, Mr. Macias was asked “How did you get to be where you are now?” To this, he stated, “Different milestones. I think I’ve always been a teacher, even when I was a student myself in high school because kids saw me as smart… So I’ve been doing some teaching from a very young age. There’s a drive for me to really know what motivates others…” He went on to say, “The passion for being an educator has been something that has been with me, that I grew up with.”
When asked what his favorite thing about his job is, Mr. Macias replied, “Being able to get to know the students. Being able to create the relationships with them that impact their lives and decisions they’re making.” He was also asked what made him want to be an administrator, to which he said: “An administration is different, I was a teacher first. Moving into a leadership position is something… It was a sense of drive towards can I do teaching as an administrator?” He also said that in order to ensure that he does well, Mr. Macias likes to take the slow road, as opposed to “moving through the hierarchy quickly” as some do. “I’m at the end of my career now. But, I’ve enjoyed it, it’s been a good journey.”
Mr. Macias is always doing so much for the school and has a huge impact on the lives of PHS staff and students. Thank you, Mr. Macias, for all of your hard work.
